Picture-Perfect Craftsman Just One Block From Broadway
Picture perfect inside and out, this is an excellent place to call home in Burlingame, just one block from Broadway for convenient shopping and dining. A classic picket fence frames the manicured lawn and gardens, and a brick walkway leads to the elevated and covered front entrance. An extensive renovation reconfigured the front of the home in 2016, allowing for expanded living space inside, while still honoring the home’s circa 1920 heritage and architectural integrity within this sought-after neighborhood.
Inside the main home, hardwood floors are found throughout along with details that give a nod to the home’s early Craftsman style. Up-lit coved ceilings highlight the numerous windows, all replaced during the renovation, in the living and dining room combination. A fireplace facade and built-in china cabinetry, along with chair rail moldings and dropped crown moldings, add to the appeal of this spacious central room. The kitchen is beautifully updated with white cabinetry, some with glass fronts, topped in absolute black granite and has stainless steel or white appliances, including a gas range. Providing wonderful everyday living space is the adjoining family room with convenient outside entrance that leads to the detached garage and rear yard.
Personal accommodations comprise 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the main home, plus there is a detached studio with bathroom that is perfect for today’s work-from-home needs and/or temporary guest stays and added playroom space. There is a lovely primary bedroom suite privately located at the rear of the home, just off the family room, plus two bedrooms, including the newly constructed, spacious front bedroom. Details like beadboard wainscot add a Craftsman touch to both bathrooms and custom organizers add functionality to wardrobe closets. Rounding out the home is a painted basement with windows that offers flexible space for play, a wine cellar, or work area. Plus, there is plenty of space for outdoor living with a large deck, lawn, and gated driveway. This family-friendly neighborhood with tree-lined streets is also just two blocks from Laguna Park with playground and has access to excellent Burlingame schools, including Lincoln Elementary less than one mile away. Welcome home!
